Several of our scholars volunteered to decorate a Walker College Foundation tree for the Festival of Lights celebration in downtown Jasper. The tree was purchased and donation by Son's Supermarket and was decorated in traditional Walker College blue and white colors. Many of the ornaments are hand decorated by the students and the blue lights used in the tree are very visible at night. Thank you to these students and Son's Supermarket!
We are so proud of our 2015-16 Scholars' Society for choosing the Salvation Army as their community service project for the Fall semester. The students collected toys for the Christmas Toy Drop and took them by the Salvation Army after their last lunch meeting. SA Director Stephanie Holcomb gave the students a tour of the facility and talked to them about the importance of the Salvation Army and the support it provides to our community.
